The HEART of our Mission

At the YMCA, volunteers are the heart of our mission. At the Sparta-White County Family YMCA, your time and talent go a long way. Every hour you spend as a YMCA volunteer translates into the caring attention a child or teen needs to grow up healthy and resilient; support for families so they can be successful and strong; healthier lives for people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and incomes, and a safer, more viable community that is a good place to live and work.

As a YMCA volunteer, you can read to a preschool class, coach a basketball team, design a program brochure, greet people at the front desk, serve as a role model for young people, help out at a special event, or be part of a group or committee working on a neighborhood problem. No matter how you help, you will make a big difference as you work with others to create a feeling of connectedness in your community.

The basic definition of a YMCA volunteer is "anyone who willingly gives time to help the YMCA accomplish its mission without getting paid by the YMCA." Here are current volunteer opportunities:

  • December 5th • 4PM - Shop with a Cop Event 

  • Spring Youth Soccer Coaches 

To solve the problems closest to home - or better yet, prevent them - the YMCA needs more people like you. Do something good!
